Event Details:

Pétursson’s intricate and subtle sound sculptures have been described as “part physics and part poetics.”

Sound waves create patterns of intersecting ripples on the surface of a large pool of water. With strategically placed lighting, the pulsing wave patterns are projected onto a wall in the form of animated dance of shadows. Pétursson refers to his poetic visualizations of sound as “drawings,” emphasizing the otherwise undetectable patterns of lines that his installations render observable.

Pétursson has had one-person exhibitions in Austria, China, Germany, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Poland, Spain, Sweden, and the United States. He represented Iceland at the 2001 Venice Biennale and was recognized with a prestigious Carnegie Art Award in 2006. His work has also been included in the 4th International Istanbul Biennial, the 14th Marrakech Biennale and other major international group exhibitions.
